Dreaming of the Loved Ones.
Copyright, 1886, by W. H. Ewald & Bro.
Dreaming of the loved ones while the shadows fall,
Olden faces linger, now mem'ry will recall,
Scenes of happy childhood come before me now.
Mother's gentle kisses sweet fall upon my brow!
Happy dreams! happy dreams
Visions of beauty my heart now thrill!
Happy dreams! happy dreams!
Oh let me dream of the loved ones still!
Dreaming of the loved ones ;-oh the happy past!
Sweet the ray of sunshine bright o'er my pathway cast!
Like the song of angels come their words to me,"
When the twilight gathers dim over land and sea!-Refrain
Dreaming of the loved ones gone from earth afar!
Oh, the joy to wander now where the dear ones are!
Gentle voices falling charm away my pain,
Hope still whispers soft and low, we shall meet again!-Refrain
